Grub Food Van

You know what I’m loving in Melbourne?

The rise of dog friendly cafes, stores…everything! Especially cafes though. There’s really not a better way to start to the weekend, then a bit of sunny weather, rocking up to a cafe, and squealing like an idiot over all the fur babies. 

Grub Food Van is such on cafe/restaurant/eatery - that has been around for a little while now, that is dog friendly. But more than that, the space is some fun, colourful and eclectic, especially when the sun is out, the service warm and the food…well it’s just divine. 

There are so many places that do breakfast, but those who do simple really well? Those are really the gems in the rough. 

First thing, coffee and chai. When we visited, Brad and I had just returned from Canada, so good coffee and good chai were sorely in need and Good Grub Van did not disappoint. 

Brad got the daily omelette, which I think had Jamon or prosciutto, gruyere and maybe silver beet? Regardless, there was cured meat and gruyere with eggs, life’s pretty good. Fluffy, light, so moreish, perfectly seasoned. 

I simply adored my mushroom dish though. Grub Food Van kick up your usual mushrooms breakfast dish to the next level, with walnuts, parmesan, truffle cream, potato gratin and pine needle powder. There was a gorgeous umami kick, and so much texture. The potato gratin retained it’s structure, but was still so smooth and soft. Could and would eat this everyday. 

Once we finished our food, I decided to order a hot lemon and honey drink, with a bit of cinnamon and spices in it too - essentially a hot toddy without the alcohol, which was the perfect way to soothe the jet lag and kick back and enjoy the laid back atmosphere (and talk about property and future plans!).

  1. Yum, the mushrooms look divine and I love the idea of the hot honey and lemon drink! Sometime you want to linger at a cafe but don't want more caffeine. Perfect alternative.
